Its nice to include the original


Dörtnala gelip Uzak Asya'dan
Akdenize bir kısrak başı gibi uzanan
Bu memleket bizim!
Bilekler kan içinde, dişler kenetli
ayaklar çıplak
Ve ipek bir halıya benzeyen toprak
Bu cehennem, bu cennet bizim!
Kapansın el kapıları bir daha açılmasın
Yok edin insanın insana kulluğunu
Bu davet bizim!
Yaşamak bir ağaç gibi tek ve hür
Ve bir orman gibi kardeşÃ§esine
Bu hasret bizim!

Nazım Hikmet

Outside of the Turkic world, Bedreddin is best known through the Epic of Sheikh Bedreddin, a narrative poem by famed leftist poet Nazim Hikmet. In Osman’s Dream, a magnificent newly-published single-volume history of the Ottoman Empire, author Caroline Finkel quotes an English translation of Hikmet’s imagined ode to oneness sung by Bedreddin’s followers as they prepared for their final confrontation with the Sultan’s forces:

To be able to sing together
pulling the nets all together from the sea,
together to forge the iron like a lace,
all together to plow the soil,
to be able to eat the honey-filled figs together
and to be able to say:
everything but the cheek of the beloved
we all share together
To achieve this
Ten thousand heroes sacrificed their eight thousand

In Turkey and in isolated corners of the lands that once comprised the Ottoman Empire, the memory of Bedreddin is still very much alive

Beautiful Roswitha ..ty

I hope the idiot who thinks Nazim was a traitor reads this.

How dare he compares his own compassion for the fatherland, with that of Nazim?
